More Kurnik Games!

Postby Jake Lopez on Thu Feb 16, 2006 4:31 pm

Anyone want to play some games at Kurnik today(2/16) between 4:30-8:00 pm Eastern? I'll play any type, 3 move or freestyle with any timers :)

I would play at Kurnik, but:

1. Americans will lagg, so that when you have more then two minutes, sudenly it counts you down to zero, or if your opponents has zero seconds, it adds two minutes or more!!
Happend in 7 out of 10 games against Americans!
2. When someone plays a losing published variation he inevitably calls you a progger or even worse...
3. Some players nagg with "take back moves" and "draw" offers in lost position to try to get time advantage.
4. Why can some players take back moves without asking you?
Happend 4 times to me one day!

It looks like a suspicious site, especially reagarding time rules and takeback, even more then yahoo, sad to say that.

I can assure you that I won't cause any harassment if you play me. And if there is a timer issue, then we can make the timer as long as possible, but I'm always open for 2 minute games.

This is the first time someone has had these type of experiences that I've heard, has anyone had this experience with the timer?

Yes ive had bad experiences in Kurnick lately,specially with playing time,when as soon as you start to play,10 minutes is reduced to 2 minutes,and silly kids try to either prog or beat you on time.Of course the only wise thing is to play someone you know.Ive even tried going into vog, but noones there except silly old bot.

The time change from 10minutes to 2 minutes is done by the table host before the start of the game. You can't prog at kurnik unless it's with 2 computers just like VOG
